Eternal Perspectives

We, whose “names are written in heaven” (Luke 10:20) and to whom new heavenly names have already been assigned (Cf. Revelation 2:17), shall stand as individuals before an Individual when we render our final account (Cf. 2 Corinthians 5:10). . . .

The entire doctrinal structure of the Bible, including God’s redemptive plan and His prophetic program, assumes the persistence of our discernible identities. . . . For instance, there will be recognition and differentiation when the righteous dead are raised from among the wicked at our Lord’s return. This will happen when Jesus judges “every man” according to his works . . . when he assigns twelve special thrones to the apostles in the New Jerusalem.
